We know it can be challenging being a ‘first time leader', and sometimes it’s hard to know where to find the right information, resources and advice to set yourself up for success.

Here at Seed, we’re passionate about building engaging and sustainable leadership capability for the future across the Hunter region, so we have created a one-of-a-kind, carefully curated Leadership Development course for this purpose.

StepAdvantage™ is a 5-month program aimed at Emerging Leaders that will help to build the skills, behaviours and knowledge to navigate the potentially tricky first few years of Leadership.

The Details

What’s involved?

Our carefully crafted Emerging Leaders Development Course is designed for new, aspiring or eager new leaders looking to enhance their skill, build their networks and embed practical learning as part of their development.  

The program creates a sense of purpose and engagement, is multi-channelled, promotes self-reflection, and encourages leaders to create workplaces which are dynamic, inspiring and effective. 

 To be delivered over a 5-month period, and grouped into three main areas of ‘Leading Self’, ‘Leading Teams’ and ‘Leading Change’, participants will be involved in: 

3 x face-to-face sessions

2 x virtual sessions

4 x bite-sized learning resources

Program outline

We’ve incorporated modules including but not limited to:

  • Leadership Foundations
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • Difficult Conversations
  • Change Management
  • Resilience and Emotional Intelligence
  • Prioritisation and Delegation
  • Workshop Introductions by Experienced Local Leaders

Through research and feedback we’ve designed this 5-month program to be short and sharp and build learning momentum via learning resources between facilitated sessions as well as peer-to-peer sharing. Utilising the small learning environment (maximum 12 participant cohort) to encourage connection and shared experience during facilitated sessions will also build participants confidence and local network.
